What Rudd has you can't quantify, you can't catalog it, or show a friend. He has that magical something that fits in so well with ACDC that NO other drummer will be as good with the band.

There are bands that get new drummers for whatever reason, and it doesn't matter, it might even be an IMPROVEMENT, but technically "better" drummers have done Rudd's gig, and it was NOT as good.

There's no technical reason for it yet it IS so. THAT'S that special something coming through. You can't BUY it, or make someone else "get it" but it exists in Rudd's playing with ACDC.
I agree Vipercussionist. It's called "Feel - Soul - Groove". I really enjoy Phil's drumming in Night Prowler - Dirty Dees Done Dirt Cheap - Get It Hot...and so on.

Life... It couldn't be better!!
